JERWEL ANDOY TOPS KADAYAWAN CHESS OPEN, ANTHONY MOSQUEDA REGISTERS TWIN UPSET WINS
( Players in action during the Kadayawan Open held over the week-end at the 5th floor of Gaisano Ilustre. )
Jerwel Andoy showed great promise by ruling the Kadayawan Open in great fashion, sweeping all his games to emerged solo winner at 7 pts. He won P 5,000.00 + trophy for his feat. Three players scored 6.5 pts namely Eric Fernandez of Tagum City, NM Cedric Magno of Panabo City and Vincent Umayan of Davao City. They emerged as 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up and 3rd runner-up, respectively, after applying the tie-break and divided among themselves the total prize of P 4,750.00. Six players scored 6 pts but Reynaldo Quiñonez emerged as the 4th runner-up due to superior tie break.
Meanwhile Anthony Mosqueda of Metro Toril Chess Club emerged as the tournament's sensation by registering upset wins over 2nd seed NM Elwin Retanal of Malita and 3rd seed US Master Peter Tidoy. He drew his last round against Nofre Reyes to finish with 5.5 pts. His only loss was a default in the 4th round after arriving late. l
As for me, I had a good result scoring 5.5 pts and landing 22nd among the more than 300 participants. I will be featuring some of my games plus the sensational win of Anthony Mosqueda over NM Retanal during my next post. Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of the pictures.
